In a series of now-deleted tweets, Frankie Pangilinan revealed that some of what she called, "FB boomers" have plans to remove her father, Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan as the Senate chair on the committee on constitutional amendments.
It was in her second Twitter account (@kakiewrites) where Frankie made the reveal, saying her father's critics are planning a strike to "make constitutional changes, allegedly in order to address the crisis" known as the COVID-19 pandemic.
"My dad is defending our Constitution,” she said about her father. "This admin can’t touch our Constitution as long as my dad’s guarding it. They cannot remove term limits (extend terms), without removing him.”
It was back in March when the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) tasked its regional offices to gather 2 million signatures in the next two months to back revisions in the Constitution amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Sen. Kiko and Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon criticized the action, saying it was an "insult" to Filipinos who went unemployed due to the crisis done by the fast-spreading disease.
Frankie warned her followers about the "Oust Kiko" posts that have been spreading in social media.
“Please please watch out for the Oust Kiko posts, and know that my dad, who is one of two senators who voted against the anti-terror bill, is protecting our rights,” the singer said.
It could be recalled that only Sen. Kiko and Sen. Risa Hontiveros voted against the controversial measure.
It had been enacted into law last July 3 after being signed by President Rodrigo Duterte.
"Please spread the word if you can,” Frankie urged. “My father is too humble of his own accomplishments for his own good.”
“I’m here to remedy that and draw attention to the fact that he’s been fervently defending our constitutional rights for the last two years,” she added.
